I am a senior graduating in the Fall of 2017. My enthusiasm for writing sparked when I took a journalism course that made me break out of my comfort zone in ways that were unimaginable to me. I was shy and cornered myself but the course made me extend my outreach to individuals and write about their lives. The stories I weaved told their adventurous journey through the ups and downs. To capture a picture expresses many thoughts and ideals, but to capture a person's mindset in writing is expressing one's true self.
